Project

Raw Silk Dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Perservering with the fitting. Being patient and not rushing or taking short cuts. Matching stripes in the center mid-drift with a random stripy fabric. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project is immensly time consuming and specialist materials take time to arrive if you have to order from overseas. Take it slowly and enjoy doing each step as perfectly as you can manage.

What you will need

  • Fashion Fabric: Handwoven Raw Silk (Nepal) Underlining: Silk Organza (US) Lining: Silk crepe de chine (China)

Q&A with zinc6

BrittaJ asked:
It's such a beautiful fabric, did you finish it?
zinc6 answered:
not yet .... I'm finishing a sleeveless version in similar fabric I made for my aunt ... I think I am nervous of the sleeves, which is where it is up too, I keep finding other projects are a higher priority. Still I must finish by 14th Dec for work xmas party.
